LOW Khai Jei won the PGM Tour’s Satellite Tournament at Kinrara Golf Club in Puchong today, an event that had three amateurs in the top-five and a trio from the PGM Peak Performance Academy.

Attached to the Malaysian Golf Association and a player who credits Pro  with his improved play this year, Khai Jei shot a final round of three-under 68 to finish the three-day tournament on even-par 213. On the first day he had a 73, which he followed up with a 72.

Second round leaders Adam Shafiq (72) and another amateur player Kuhanesh Ganesan (74) finished runner-up and third, respectively. Both currently under the tutelage of the PGM Peak Performance Academy, they ended the event on two-over 215 and 217.

In fourth place on 221 was amateur Kenneth Lui Da Hui (73), while Farid Rashid, another member of the Academy, was fifth, a stroke further back.

Khai Jei, who leaves Kuala Lumpur tomorrow to play in the Taiwan Amateur Championships, said he was “happy” to have sealed the come-from-behind victory.

“To win any tournament is always nice and to make up the ground on the last day was really satisfying,” added the 17-year-old. “I started rather slow but had a good back nine, where I shot three-under.”

Speaking of the recent progress he has made with his game, Khai Jei said: “I said started working with A PRO   this year and travelled to Las Vegas. So far it has gone off really well and I feel I’m making improvements all-round.

“The plan is to visit Butch about twice a year and hopefully we can take it from there.”

Probed on his medium-term plans, the Saujana member said he had no immediate intention of turning pro any time soon and added that he was looking to consolidate his game in the amateur ranks first. Khai Jei is a scratch player.

Adam, who started golf as an eight-year-old and featured in four PGM Tour events before this one without much success, said he too was happy with his performance in the Satellite tournament.

“I hit ball solidly this week and overall have grown in confidence,” said the player from Kedah.

“I am pleased with the learning experience at the Academy as it is helping my game get better. I feel more focused now and I think that showed my performance in this tournament.

“Hopefully I can build on it in future events,” added the 18-year-old.

Kuhanesh, also 18 years old and also from the Peak Performance Academy, said while the course was in “good condition and tough” he took a lot of positives from the tournament.

“I played rather well here,” he said. “Although I could obviously have done better, I was happy with my swing and putting, and now I must look to ways of improving even further,” added Kuhanesh.
